Normal healthy individuals need a daily intake 50-200mcg of chromium
Chromium level in body decreases as the age increases
Supplementation of 200-400mcg chromium daily is recommended for individuals with glycemic concern
Absorption of chromium from foods is only 0.3-0.4%
Inadequate chromium intake results in impaired glucose tolerance and also links to insulin resistance
